    Default Sharing the lurve :)

    Due to loss of pics and defunct links I thought it was time for a new 'Sharing the lurve' thread.

    I know you are a generous bunch and a big thank you goes to all of you, sharing through the VSP, circles or on random requests. I also know you are a nosey bunch and love to see what happens to them. So please share your comments and pics on here and where possible include the donors vine name.

    Default Thalictrum aquilegiafolium

    Thanks to WPG for the Thalictrum aquilegiafolium seed from the flower circle 2017. Tried a few times to grow these with no success so looking forward to seeing these lil' ones grow big and strong

    Default Honesty from Broadripple (VSP)

    Took a year longer to flower than expected but it is certainly making up for it

    I have already cut a load for flower arrangements

    Default Toms, Giallo D'Inverno from Sarico (VSP)

    Yes, this pic was taken this morning. I have tried to grow these a couple of times and it would appear they are a GH only tom. I shared seed last year in the circle so hopefully this will tempt some peeps to grow them. They are an Italian winter storage tom. Mine are about ping pong ball size but they weren't watered as much as they should have been.
